Although my own experience staying in one particular Airbnb in Los Angeles over the summer was questionable (we're talking rats and fleas here) I was blown away by the ease at which their mobile app works, and the variety of homes on offer.
So, after a semester where I felt as though I was producing work that was typically "me", I thought I needed a project to get out of my comfort zone. The colorful, calm and homely feel of the Airbnb brand seemed a perfect way to do this. What began as a stylistic exploration that was very new to me, quickly became an opportunity to practice 3D animation, compositing and fun storytelling in a way I hadn't seen in my work before.
